the stories behind ‘the great deep’

theorize progynova price it was a year ago

buy Quetiapine on line without a rx (where did the time go?),

buy isotretinoin cheap without perscription that malabrigo yarn got in touch to say

i had been picked as an mfpp (malabrigo freelance pattern project) indie designer,

paired up with alison, and given the theme ‘glittering fish’

with this photo for inspiration.

alison and i spent the next few weeks

sending notes & sketches back and forth.

by the end of the summer we had a

rough idea of who would

do what and in which malabrigo colorways.

 then the nuts and bolts

of putting patterns together began.

re-swatching, tweaking, and lots of math.

now here it is june already.

my 6 patterns (also available as an e-book)

were released on friday.¬† alison’s are coming up soon.

do, i’ll spend the next 6 days posting about the underwater inspirations

for each of my patterns,

why i named them what i did,

and a little about some of what did and didn’t turn out the way i expected.

remember my leap into steeking?

that was one of the patterns in ‘the great deep’.

check out the e-book patterns here

can you tell which one?

up next – ‘peixe’: what i thought it was going to be

and how it set me straight.

repurposed

turns out that

in the loop‘ bags

are just the right size

for hauling

more than yarn.

i used two of mine

to lug all the

necessary gear

for styling 6 new patterns

at a photo shoot

with shutterbug caryn

this past week.

maybe now i’ll have to buy more yarn to get more bags.

what’s a knittin’ girl to do?

this is how it goes

you know when

you lean way back

in a kitchen chair until

there are only two of its legs

left on the ground?

then you tilt

just a tiny bit farther

and you almost fall,

but at the very last second

you catch yourself?

steeking feels

an awful lot

like that.
